With the deadline for the United Nations Millennium Development Goals fast approaching, the world is gearing up to establish a new set of goals for the next 15 years.Education for all was among the goals that were assessed.The importance of education is indisputable. The problem is that the international community's credibility in promising universal education has been compromised; it has pledged to achieve this goal in at least 12 U.N.-sponsored declarations since 1950 . In fact, the goal of ensuring primary and secondary education for all could well end up costing more than the entire global aid budget for education.With 60 million children still out of school, the international community should not simply postpone the same universal-education target until 2030 . Finally, preschool education is less expensive to deliver than higher-level schooling.
